Model of Gabanintha Project

Australian Vanadium (AV) will conduct a definitive feasibility study (DFS) for its Gabanintha vanadium project in the Murchison Province of Western Australia.

AV ended 2018 with an option conversion that gave a cash injection of AUD6.2 million (US$4.4m) and a subsequent cash position of AUD9.68m, enabling them to conduct the DFS.

Managing director Vincent Algar said: “Starting 2019 with a healthy cash balance enables us to move swiftly forward with our plans for the Gabanintha project.”

Vanadium redox flow batteries bid for Australia storage trial

Renewables storage firm Vsun Energy is bidding to use vanadium redox flow (VRFB) batteries in a trial standalone power systems (SPS) project in Western Australia (WA).

WA’s energy minister Ben Wyatt has given the green light for electricity distributor Western Power to conduct the SPS demonstration within part of the state’s South West Interconnected Network— with 60 locations earmarked to take part.

Yellow Rock undergoes name change as it ups vanadium focus

Yellow Rock undergoes name change as it ups vanadium focus

An Australian vanadium supplier has identified so much potential in the supply of vanadium for electrolytes that it has changed its name to reflect its future direction.

Formerly Yellow Rock Resources, the company now called Australian Vanadium is pushing exploration in the remote Gabanintha area in Western Australia, where there is a sizeable deposit of vanadium.

Although Australian Vanadium has copper, gold and uranium prospects in Australia, vanadium has become its priority

The company has hired Emeritus Professor Maria Skyllas-Kazacos of the University of New South Wales for her expertise in assessing the global market for vanadium electrolyte and to identify the best way to process the material for this market.

Skyllas-Kazacos was instrumental in inventing the all-vanadium redox flow cell battery in 1985, and has continued developing the technology at the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

She oversaw the installation of the Gildemeister Cell Cube 130kWh vanadium flow battery on the campus earlier this year, which was the first major installation of a large vanadium redox battery in Australia.
